RYANAIR CHASE BETTING PREVIEWThe Ryanair Chase was introduced at the Festival in 2005, and has become the "easier option" for some high class horses to take rather than tackle the Gold Cup. It's a Grade 1 National Hunt chase run over two miles and five furlongs, for horses aged five years and upwards, with 17 fences to be jumped. The race boasts an impressive prize purse of £350,000 and has produced some impressive winners in recent years.
And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Ryanair CHase and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.
A PLUS TARD kicked off the season with a slightly below par effort behind a fit Ballyoisin at Navan but then came right back to form with a smooth success at Leopardstown from the highly regarded Chacun Pour Soi. Successful in last year's Close Brothers Novices' Handicap Chase in convincing fashion, he has now won 3 from 7 over fences.
MIN has been to Cheltenham three times and been beaten by Altior on each occasion. He took the Irish Champion Chase last April at Punchestown (beating Politologue by over 20 lenghts). This season he has landed the John Durkan Chase race over a longer trip beating Hardline by over two lengths. Last time out he came up short when bidding to make it a hat-trick of wins in the Dublin Chase at Leopardstown, going down narrowly to Chacun Pour Soi
FRODON produced a memorable display to land a competitive Ryanair Chase last year, beating Aso by a length and a quarter. He was below that form in his first two starts of the current campaign, but he looked much more like his old self when winning the Silviniaco Conti Chase at Kempton last time.
CHACUN POUR SOI hit the headlines when beating Defi du Seuil at Punchestown, with the Arkle winner Duc des Genievres a remote third. He has created a deep impression in winning 3 of his 4 starts over fences since arriving from France. He was beaten at 15/8-on at Leopardstown at Christmas but brilliantly landed a Grade 1 race at Leopardstown in February (with Min well behind him).
RIDERS ONTHE STORM recently completed a hat-trick for Nigel and Sam Twiston-Davies in the Ascot Chase (by 14 lengths from Janika) last time out. Prior to that he kicked off by winning a Class 2 handicap at Aintree off 140 and then was made favourite to win the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup, unfortunately due to an admin mix up he couldn’t run.
POLITOLOGUE finished runner-up last year, just under two lengths behind Altio. Paul Nicholls' charge has run just twice so far this season, chasing home Defi Du Seuil at Cheltenham in November before finishing fifth behind the same horse in the Tingle Creek at Sandown.
DUC DE GENEVRIES failed to build on the promise of his 2019 Arkle Chase win in five starts this season.
SAINT CALVADOS produced a career-best effort to be beaten just a nose by Oldgrangewood in a Grade 3 handicap over C&D last time out.
SHATTERED LOVE won the JLT Novices’ Chase over C&D at this meeting in the 2018 Cheltenham Festival.
ASO has been well below his best on last 2 starts but has a good record here, including placed twice in this race, and wouldn't be a surprise to see him bounce back to form.
